Package Tour Itinerary: Rome & Athens

ROME - THE ETERNAL CITY
1
ROME - THE ETERNAL CITY

Upon your arrival at the airport of the 'Eternal City', a member of our team will be waiting for you in one of our private vehicles to welcome you and transfer you comfortably and quickly to your hotel.

Rome was called the “Eternal City” by the ancient Romans because they believed that no matter what happened in the rest of the world, the city of Rome would always remain standing. Throughout the centuries the Italian capital reached the pinnacle of the historic, artistic, and cultural expression of the Western world and you will understand why this great city has proudly featured in the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1980. 

The rest of the day will be free for you to relax, and if you wish, begin to enjoy Rome at your own pace.

Greca Tip: Remember that the best way to get around the narrow and pedestrian streets of the historic center of Rome is on foot.

DO LIKE THE ROMANS DO

DO LIKE THE ROMANS DO

After a refreshing breakfast, you will have free time to explore the Eternal City at your own pace. You can choose from thousands of options: walking, visiting monuments, shopping or tasting the local gastronomy and from a wide selection pasta, vegetable, meat and fish dishes. 

Rome is the geographical heart of the Catholic religion and the city with the highest concentration of historical and architectural assets in the world. In 1980, together with the extraterritorial properties of the Holy See found in the city and the Saint Paul's Outside the Walls, Rome was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Greca Tip: Optionally, you can book a guided tour in English, with exclusive tickets (avoiding the queues), to visit the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica or the magical Colosseum.
